The patch doesn't remove references to pam_get_pass(); it removes the port's
own implementation of pam_get_pass() under the assumption that libpam
provides one (which it no longer does).  I'm afraid it's simply not going to
work on -CURRENT without heavy modification...  It relies too heavily on old
glue code which has been removed.
